pie chart Zandl's Tezzeret of Empires




From the 2011-12 Standard season. Aside from Wolf Run decks, this is quite possible the most fun I ever had with deck-building and playing.

By God, I'm gonna play this stupid cycle of Artifacts before rotation. I've been wanting to throw them together for so long now that I'd just feel awful if I didn't.

And I know there are a handful of cards in here (aside from the Empires Artifacts) that you wouldn't normally use. I'm just trying to get my fill of the cards I've always wanted to use but never have. And Redirect 's not half-bad against Bonfire of the Damned, either.

this deck is great but only half as great as deck:why-this-a-deck it wins by opponent forfeit over 80% of the time and it plays Spine of Ish Sah as a win condition. btw my friend took the deck and went 6-0 at a fnm last month

Clearly, your friend's FNM isn't competitive. That deck would get curb-stomped at my FNM, where decks actually need to work.

You need to understand how that deck works or it is terrible. You must play it to understand it at first look its garbage but with play in the right hands it is a good deck. The point of it is to destroy aggro/midrange decks which are most the meta by wiping the board and winning through spine lock wurmcoil's or chalice

Hey zandl, I just wanted to let you know that this deck isn't standard anymore. All sets from the Scars of Mirroden block rotated out in October, when Return to Ravnica was released. Anyways, just wanted to let you know that you're not allowed to bring this to Friday Night Magic.

I'm pretty sure you can bring any deck to FNM. They just won't let you play with it, unless it meets the required legalities.

C'mon man. Semantics, semantics, semantics.

Don't mind Frozr. He's just trolling me because he has an irrational hatred toward me and apparently has nothing better to do with his time.

Oh. Well that certainly simplifies things.

Just to catch you up, this deck is no longer modern legal, as most of the cards in the mainboard have been banned

Um. None of these cards are banned in Modern.

Regardless, though, this was a Standard deck from, like, 5 years ago. I'm not exactly sleeving it up as we speak.
